Orphanage we visited with about 36 children ages 0-3 years. The building was old but clean with bright colors on the walls. The children seemed well taken care of, but it was still sad for me to see. We played with the children two times. When you are throwing a ball and giving them a hug, they don't seem to mind if it is in English. Picture here is Anna who works for ConocoPhillips. She grew up in the area and was our guide while in Naryan-mar.

How can you give a hug in English and why there is always a presumption that all Russian orphanages are awful? That was nice of you to visit the orphanage though. I am wondering why would you be interested in doing it if you were not planning on donating money or adopting a child?
